    Also, we're planning our return anniversary stay for AB.  Do you know when the renovations will be finished?



     

    Hi taylorwd,

     

    Their target date is December 1st to fully reopen.  Congrats on your wedding when's your Anniversary?  I know I couldn't believe it when our TA sent us the pictures (her colleague was just in the area last week)!  We were so bummed, because we had fallen in love with AB, I cried for 2 days!  I mean I'm sure its going to be beautiful and better once the renovations are complete but unfortunately for us they won't be done by October.   And we just can't take the risk that all of our guests won't be at the same resort, so we had to cancel.  The frustrating part about it all is that we had asked them before we booked if there were going to be any off-season construction going on and they completely down played it, telling us/our TA there would only be 10-15 rooms closed for interior renovations.  It was only when we couldn't get two extra rooms that we realized the extent of their renovations.  I also hear that they own the Hidden beach resort next door to AB and that that resort is completely closed for renovations as well.  I just hope that other brides get informed about it, its really unfortunate.

      Wow! They are really renovating. I will be in the area mid October, I'll try to take some pictures, so for those that are booked at Azul Beach, they'll have an idea how they are progressing.

        Hi Girls,  Has anyone ever inquired with their WC why the Lomas website shows Caribe & Royale are the approved photographers for Azul, while the Azul website  shows Caribe & Matias?

         

        http://weddings.loma...nd-Video&idc=17

         

        I sent an email to my WC asking, but she usually takes a week or so to respond, so I was hoping one of you might know which is correct.

          I sent an email with my WC, but she usually takes a week or so to respond, and I'm anxious to find out!

           

          p.s.  sorry if this is another dupe...my last attempt to post this didnt show up :(.  I actually think it has something to do with using a MAC?

            Meredith,

            I hope you find something special for your mom. My mom hasn't been the most excited person for me about this whole thing...

            Thanks for all of your gift suggestions! I really appreciate it and I guess you'll find out how that goes if I can ever get a planning thread together.

             

            On another note, WARNING...here comes my rant 


            Hi Girls!

             

            My name is Jenni...been lurking on this site for a few days. 

             

            FH & I are planning on getting married at Azul Sensatori or El Dorado Royale, next summer!

             

            We are going to visit on Sept 4th!!!!  Leaning more towards Azul because it is kid friendly and I love the sky ceremony.

             

            I see a lot of you girls are working with TAs?  is this something we should be doing?

             

            we thought about working with a wedding planning co called Luxe...they are TAs and wedding planners in one...but someone who is a TA told me not bother because the staff at the hotel is super helpful.

             

            Anyway, Im super excited to chat with you girls!


            Welcome back Mrs. I was thinking about as watching Trisha's (from Clean House) wedding at Le Blanc. Can't wait till to hear more about your wedding. I am so happy that the weather was PERFECT!!!

Whew!!!!!!!  The wedding planners and staff at Le Blanc were a DREAM to work with and did everything they possibly could to make our weekend super special!!  I will be posting a review very soon!!  A few people have posted some pics and tagged me on facebook, so hopefully you are able to pull them up!  I also set up a kodak account, so I will share that as soon as more pictures get uploaded from the guests.  If you guys are looking for a honeymoon spot, I HIGHLY recommend Le Blanc.  It was OUT OF THIS WORLD!!!!  The people were so nice and the resort was fabulous!!  I hope all the wedding planning is going great for you girls.  Trust me, as soon as you step foot on the resort, you will not have a worry in the world!!!



            I am sorry you don't like Claudia. We are having Erick Claudia for our wedding and he's been great to work with so far. I hope you find what you are looking for.

                I need help... what are you guys doing for the guest book? I've been the post card, thumb print tree, book, etc... I am really torn between just not having anything to something creative and fun. initially I wanted to have a photo book...always wanted to have the actual photo booth for that's not going to happen. I got less than a month to finish up last minute stuff and I have not decided on what to do. Any suggestions? Am I over-thinking this?

                We are getting postcards to put into our OOT bags with a little note. Please fill in a postcard with your favorite memories of the trip or well wishes for the couple and then have them put it into the mail.

                 

                If you want the photobooth idea. Get a few cheap one use cameras/or a digital camera and set them up on a little table. Leave a note to ask guests to take a picture of themselves and leave a note with their well wishes. After the fact, you can get the film developed or the photos printed and you'll have a photobook. Good luck.
